- O'Donoghue was credited as recurring during the first half of the second season before being upgraded to main.
- Portrayed by Tom Ellis before being replaced by Maguire in the third season.
- Maguire portrays as the Wish Realm version of Robin Hood and not the actual Robin Hood.
- Henry was born in the Land Without Magic, however, he does possesses some Enchanted Forest heritage, such as an Enchanted Heart like the others. This could be due to both of his parents originating from Magical Realms.

However, this does not prove that she was born in the Land Without Magic. Additionally, when Rumplestiltskin ripped her heart out, it was found that she had an Enchanted Heart, just like the other inhabitants from the Magical Realms.
